Contests and Submissions

Poets, fiction and creative nonfiction writers interested in submitting their work for publication or in entering their work in contests will be interested in the free information available at the Yahoo! group created and maintained by Allison Joseph, author of Imitation of Life (pictured, right). The group, created in 2005, is at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/crwropps-b/.

By joining the group - there is no cost to you - you can have the updates sent directly to your e-mail inbox. The list is updated frequently throughout each week.

How to join the group?


Ms. Joseph explains:
Send a blank e-mail message to crwropps-b-subscribe@yahoogroups.com

You will receive a sign-up message in return.

If you don't get the sign-up invitation, check the junk mail folder of your e-mail for it.

Or visit


and click on "Join This Group."

Follow on-screen instructions to complete sign-up.


The updates from this list are much closer to real-time announcements than what's available, for instance, in the annual Poet's Market or in Poets & Writers magazine which comes out six times a year. I found Allison's "Creative Writers Opportunities List" a huge help when I was sending poems out for publication.
